    Boredom and feeling too busy are the same problem. Some people might claim I’m being too ambitious trying to strike down chronic boredom and busyness at the same time. I’d argue that the only way to take them out is simultaneously.

This means that you feel there are high quality ways to spend attention, but your attention is being stolen from you before you can use it.
